13 Comments 22 November 2013

I stood on the street corner early one morning in Saigon with my camera.  As the next wave of motorbike traffic sped by I was ready – the camera viewfinder was up to my eye and I was ready to get in sync with the traffic whizzing by me.  I’d catch a motorbike through my [...]

I walk down the stairs and hear the familiar sound of the Berlin Ubahn arriving on the tracks below – I instinctively pick up my pace and start to race down the stairs, around the corner, down a final set of stairs and slip into the Ubahn before the doors slide shut! It’s days like [...]

A blanket of snow covered the vast, flat runway – there would be no planes taking off today. Actually – there will be no planes taking off from Tempelhof airport ever again. The famous airport that was used during world wars and the cold war was shut down in 2008 – but it’s legacy lives [...]
